Greener Pastures Eco Farm

4 sites · RVs, Tents75 acres · Woodstock, ON
Our farming adventure began in the Spring of 2015 on a 15 acre farm. In 2020 we moved to a 75-acre farm just outside of Woodstock, Ontario. Carl's childhood passion of animal husbandry was given a new purpose when our family made a conscious decision to change the way we related to our food. We began a family quest to eat locally and sustainably. As our little farm grew we developed relationships with our greater community and Greener Pastures was born! As our farming adventure continues, we are loving that each day brings new opportunities for learning. We invite you to join us as we continue to seek greener pastures! While here, be sure to visit the On-Farm Shoppe for fresh eggs, meats, and other great local products.

Come to the Pinecone to completely relax and disconnect (seriously you will because there is no cell service!). During Summer and much of Spring and Fall, you should be able to drive up to the cabin.

Once through the gate it’s only a 1-minute drive to where you will park. This road may be a bit muddy! If you are looking for a Winter Bunkie getaway, we would be happy to host you; please note the following: - If there has been a lot of snow the private road from the street to the Bunkie is not plowed. Depending on the type of vehicle you are driving, you may have to park at the gate entrance and walk in (4-5min walk) to get to the Bunkie. - There is a mini wood fireplace in the Bunkie for sleeping but depending on the temperature outside and/or the wind it still may be a little chilly. - There is lots of free wood available for an outside fire but we are sometimes low on small pieces to start fire or use for the mini fireplace.

You'll have an outdoor fire pit, picnic table and 2 grills (we have lots of wood but you can bring your own charcoal for cooking). Enjoy watching the starts at night by the fire and visits from the abundant wildlife. There is 1 queen size bed in the loft for sleeping which is accessible by ladder.

It is a big chunk of land but you can't really get 'lost' on it for any significant period of time. We are bounded by roads so eventually you will find your way.
